Attempting Gary Novak's Tone Poem Solo

I've been working on this one for a while and I still don't really feel like I can pull it off like I want but I gave it all I got for now haha. This is such a beautiful solo and Gary's feel and sound is just impossible to recreate. This uncovered a lot of weaknesses in my own playing, though, and shed some light on some new concepts for me that I will continue to explore. Hope you guys dig this one, let me know what you think!
